It's been so long since I've created a build thread, I don't know what to say.

Just kidding Razz

First and foremost, big thanks go out to Kyle for doing the wheeling and dealing to insure that I could get this gem.  He posted up the Craigslist add for me and with some emailing and the help of an overnight check, the deal was done.

It's a 1988 DX, M/T, YR-88.  Exactly what I've been looking for.  This is my fourth sedan since getting into the game.  This will be a slow build.  I have everything already planned out, but of course things can change.  Enough blabber, onto some pix.  More pix to come once I bring it home.

I only have a few parts left over from my previous builds.  I wish I had a four door when I was living in Cali.  Should be able to make it back for Eibach next year Wink  That's the plan anyways.

So I'm kicking around the idea of a few different wheels.  This is the front runner at the moment.  Any thoughts?

I've always thought that style looked pretty cool. I've seen them with a lip-coordinated stripe on the recesses besides the spokes.. Looks pretty cool.  Theres a guy at work that has the Rota 4-spoke on his 93 coupe they look awesome on it.

Or if I can score some split three spoke advans in black with a red lip.  Who knows.  I'm just mulling over some ideas.

I have never liked the wheels with the red lips. But for some reason they just pop on almond cars. I say go for it!

Not trying to but it'll be similar.  I would rock the auto-x but everyone would think it was his old one, haha.

Your cousins sedan is where I got the idea for the wheels.  I want to tuck or at least be flush.  So not sure on the offset or tire size.

Not trying to.  I had my YR-88 before he did (my first 4g4d ever, was one).

I've always loved the brown int.

The reason I sought this particular sedan out is I regret the route I went with my first one (click pic for build thread).
